Tremendously sad to hear writer Achmat Dangor has passed on. It’s no exaggeration to say Kafka’s Curse (1997), Bitter Fruit (2001) changed me. Dangor’s depictions of Asian life in Southern Africa were politically charged, with mythical allusions RIP🖤https://t.co/2C9dAUwtNV

It was an honor and a privilege to have known such a calm and clear, eloquent and kind leader.
An homme de lettres, and a man of principles.
Rest In Peace, Achmat Dangor! https://t.co/5GOpRCSXIz

A great author. An activist proper. He led the Congress of South African Writers (COSAW). Achmat Dangor was a revolutionary who believed that the “pen was mightier than the sword”. https://t.co/YpZbexZrqS
